    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Atkins.

    Interview

    I applied through Year in Industry, a scheme by Engineering Development Trust. I asked the admin people to send over my CV to the company. In this case, the Rotherham based nuclear division. Was called for an interview soon after.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were very straighforward. The interviewers were genuinely interested to help you work through questions, especially technical questions. All technical questions were structural based. Draw bending moment diagrams, resolve forces and find moments in different structures. Competency questions included how you manage when many deadlines are coming up together soon.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't one
